Sugaring is almost here!

As I watch the snow fall incessantly out my window, as beautiful as it is, today I can’t help but feel a tad bit sick of winter.  What gets me through, is knowing that maple sugaring season is just around the corner!  Over the past week, in attempts to make the season come faster, I have picked up a half cord of wood for burning, I have cleaned out the sugar shack nice and good and bought a few new supplies that will help the process flow better this year.

Last year was Hart Farm’s inaugural sugaring season.  And how fun it was!  After 4 or so weeks of collecting sap with friends, learning how to split wood “efficiently” and boiling away, we entered spring with 3 gallons of sweet, delicious, GOLD!

I sincerely look forward to do it all again with anyone/everyone who wants to come up to the farm and help out or just hang out and drink a beer.  All are welcome!

Here is something to get us pumped:

Freezing nights and warm days are what sets off the sugaring season.
